WOOHOO! Guess who's got a week's holiday! Yep! No work for Saf for five glorious days!

So, day one of five days of freedom done! Achieved today:

  • Nice long lie in.
  • Caught up on Supernatural. Am now on par with the American showings. 14 Episodes in just over a day!
  • Ummm... that's it.

Am not sure what I want to do tomorrow. I have to go shopping, if only for shampoo, but what else? Go all the way into town and see a film as well? Or go to Tesco's and do some baking instead? Or get cheap, generic stuff from up the road and spend the day reading Bleach?

Decisions, decisions...

Frankly, this break is perfectly timed. There was a meeting at work today. (My manager told me about it advance since I wasn't in today). They (being the management) are serious thinking about bring the area's operations manager into branch to run an investigation. If they do, and she finds anything, then it could lead to dismissals. I knew it was bad, but this...? Shit. At least I know I should be safe. I know I haven’t done anything intentionally wrong, and I'm hardly behind the counter. At least, I was, until last week. For some unknown reason, my line manager pulled me off co-ordinating, and has put me on the till again, for the first extended period in a long time. No one seems to know why, and my line manager won't tell me. I personally think that someone, possibly the new transfer, has been complaining that I do it all the time (Well, duh, that is my assigned role in the branch), and my line manager is trying to appease everyone, 'cause she knows it's all going wrong. Funny thing is? Out of the three people who have been co-ordinating in my place, one isn't keen on doing it, and one of the other's is assistant counter manager, and shouldn't be doing it anyway. The two I know want to do haven't been given the chance.

Okay, onto more fun things: Supernatural Season 5. EEEEEE!!!! Seriously, I managed to stay unspoiled for almost the whole thing, which is pretty impressive given my record of TV spoilers. This show just keeps getting better and better. What's really interesting? I've just finished (re)reading Good Omens for the gazillioneth time and I was thinking how I wanted to see some more variation in the demons in Supernatural, so that they less Always Evil. And then I watched 'Abandon All Hope'. With a Noble Demon called
Crowley. I laughed out loud at that point. Now, all we need is an angel called Aziraphale to be mentioned. That would be awesome, if not completely fitting with the angels in the show.

Yeah, like I said earlier. I suck at keeping this updated.

Life is dull at the moment. Work is slow, I seem to have lost all communication with my friends (All my fault, 'm 'fraid) and, well, nothing's really going on.

I have been spending way too much money on books and comics, though. Since the last post, I've bought the next three Ultimate X-Men (14, 15 and 16); Vol. 2 and 3 of Astonishing X-Men; Decimation: X-Men - The Day After; Battle Royale; Stargate SG1: Hydra; The Tiger Warrior; Tolkien's The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun; The Ancients In Their Own Words and Alan Lee's The Lord Of the Rings Sketchbook, which I used my Waterstone's points on, so got six pounds off. Go me! I wonder how much it would have been if I got it on Amazon?

Huh. Only about a pound cheaper than what I got if for. And the other large hardback, The Ancients In Their Own Words, is twice the price I paid for it. Thank the gods for cheap bookshops.

Almost forgot, ordered Days of Future Present last night. Second hand, so I'm hoping that it'll be here tomorrow. Despite having a load of prose novels to read, I am really addicted to comic books, and feel bored if I don't have a new one to read. Given I go through them like wildfire, I'm spending way too much money on them. In the three months or so since this the 'addiction' started, I have bought over thirty trade paperbacks. I would buy the actual comics, since WHSmiths actually stock them, but they're about three years behind. Literally, I picked up the most recent issue to day to flick throught it, and it was the second part of Torn, realised back in 2006.

Saw X-Men Origins: Wolverine about two weeks ago. While it wasn;t a perfect film (Does such thing exist?) I did find it enjoyable. Then, my knowledge of comic canon isn't the brilliant, so I was able to watch is a movie, not an adaptation, as it were.

Watched all of one more episode of Primeval, but that one episode was enough to send me straight to Deniel. If you sollow the series, I'm sure you know what I mean.

Supernatural Finale tonight! Eeeeeeee!!!!

So, my Dad finally made contact with me. Only a week later that he was supposed to.

Okay, okay, so he had some stuff going on (Grandad in hospital and some rather messy legal business at work) but still! A week to call me! He didn't even have the guts to call me first. He called Mum yesterday and didn't even ask to speak to me. Way to go, Dad! And he's going back to Oz tomorrow. He's back in three weeks, but that doesn't negate the fact I've seen for less that an hour this time.

Okay, I'm chilled, I'm cool.

Work has been so slow this week. With all the good weather, no one's been cming in to the bank. Doesn't help I'm on the midget till as well. Small, cramped, hard to see the queue and I have to take Business and Premier customers as priority. That means I get the snooty ones and the ones that'll give me no leads. I onnly managed three future and one sweep last week. Since I'm ment to do ten a week minimum, that's not good. Still, that sweep got over 7000 points of value, so they can't really complain (a single seller's target per week in 6000) plus I got loads of appoinments in the past couple of weeks (combinding me co-ordinating plus ISA season equals lots of appointments).

Comics arrived earlier this week. Read all of them barring AoA in about two days (working my way through is now). Liked House of M and Astonishing X-Men (will definatly be getting vol. 2 next time), LOVED Marvel 1602, but I already thought I would before I bought it. Combind Neil Gaimen with 17th century versions of 60's Marvel heroes? Sounds about as near damn perfect for me as it gets.

Am still way behind on Primeval. Got three episodes to watch now. On the plus side, am now up to date with Supernatural. Can't wait until next weeks episode!

Also, X-Men Origins: Wolverine out this week. I've got Thursday off, so I'm gonna go and see it then. By myself, unfortuatly. but with Dad in Oz, I've got no one to go see my geeky films with. On that note, I didn't even know they were making a film of Angels and Demons 'till I saw an ad for it. Trying to convince my Mum to see it with me. I'm not all that keen on going to the cinema on my own.

Back to fanfic now. I only have about half an hour before I need to go to sleep. (Yes, I sleep late. I'm still a teenager, even if for only a year and a bit, I'm allowed)
